Re: [PLUG] Domain catch-all email addresses providers

I thought it was required, or maybe that is postmaster. CJ had this issue a few years ago, I believe. If Ghandi is email service provider,  they may be trying to cut the server workload down. Catch-alls can cause hard bounces, and the server accepts the bad email then rejects it.

Hey all,

        I'm looking for suggestions/recommendations of decent cheap email
service providers that allow catch-all/wildcard addresses.

        I currently have a few domains spread across and 1&1 (now I don't use either's hosting, I use Linode for that. So I'm
basically wasting money with 1&1 at the moment. Ideally I'd like to dump
1&1, then just use Gandi for domain registration and email.

        The problem is Gandi has some silly issues with catch-all addresses and
won't allow them. I've been using a catch-all with one of my domains in
particular for 15+ years and have no chance of remembering all the
various addresses I've given out over the years, so I can't stop now.

        I'd like to avoid running my own imap/mail server on my Linode if
possible, though it looks like I may end up having to do that. Does
anyone know of inexpensive service providers that'll let me create
catch-all addresses for my domains and access the mailboxes via imap?
